Sure. The LSR is *very* useful. And ofcourse the problem of an
outdated LSR _is_ relevant!

I don't think that this will ever work,

As I wrote before, noone on devel could help.
Contacting Seba (the LSR-maintainer) wasn't succesfull.

Well, I hesitate to change anything _in_ LSR until Seba replied.
We could start updating as a more privat project.
Means: updating the relevant files and providing them locally on our
own computers.
I could do that or, at least, start with it.
But does this _really_ make sense?

AFAIK, the LSR is an associated project, not part of the source in any way.
So why start a new issue?
